Roman Reigns is arguably one of the biggest and most influential WWE superstars of this generation and perhaps, in the history of the company. The Tribal Chief ruled the promotion with an Iron Fist for nearly four years on his Island of Relevancy.

However, the era of his Roman Empire came to its crashing halt when Roman Reigns was defeated by the fan favorite, Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 40, losing his Undisputed WWE championship and ending his historic title reign at 1,316 days.

Despite not being seen on WWE television programming since then, he was name-dropped in an important moment during the recent WWE King and Queen of the PLE that many of the viewers might not have realized.

Which surprising moment saw Roman Reigns being mentioned during the recent WWE PLE?

The main event of the WWE King and Queen of the Ring saw the man who defeated Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes defend his Undisputed WWE championship against the current WWE United States champion, Logan Paul in a first-ever showdown with only Rhodes’ title on the line.

During the course of the match, as Rhodes and Paul were locked in combat to overpower each other, veteran WWE commentator, Michael Cole gave a huge shoutout to The Tribal Chief. He mentioned Roman Reigns at the time, who turned 39 years old sending out his birthday wishes on live television.

“Thinking of Roman Reigns whose birthday it is today… happy birthday out to the big Uce.”

In the aftermath of WrestleMania 40, Roman Reigns has been spotted filming for an upcoming film, titled ‘Good Fortune’ alongside an ensemble cast of Hollywood actors like Keanu Reeves, Keke Palmer, Aziz Ansari, and Seth Rogen.

Moreover, there have been multiple speculations regarding Reigns’ return, including him returning to form his own Bloodline to take down the one led by his Enforcer Solo Sikoa alongside Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa.
